    EVENT NOTES

    “I’m excited to get back to Atlanta with ForeverLawn. It’s a big weekend for them, and I’m excited to have the ForeverLawn family there with us at the track. It’s going to be interesting to see what this reconfiguration is like, but no matter what, I know my No. 26 guys have built a fast car. I’m honored to the be the driver of the SHR car for their 50th start – that’s such an exciting milestone for this team.”
    — Jeffrey Earnhardt, Driver of the No. 26 ForeverLawn Toyota GR Supra
    “Coming off of the great run last weekend in Phoenix, we’re excited to get back to work with Jeffrey and ForeverLawn at Atlanta. This weekend marks Sam Hunt Racing’s 50th start as a team, and have intentions on making #50 one to remember. There are so many unknowns going to the new Atlanta Motor Speedway, it’s hard to know what to expect for how it will race. However, I do expect us to tackle the new track as a team and give Jeffrey everything we’ve got to compete with.”
    — Sam Hunt, Owner of Sam Hunt Racing
